How long does it take your 7 week old to empty one side?

My DD is 7 weeks old and all of a sudden she seems to be emptying one side in about 5 minutes? I didn't think she would be able to do that until she was older. It was taking her anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes per side before. I try to keep her on for 10 minutes just to make sure she is getting it all.

Is this normal at 7 weeks? How long does it take your LO?

  • Every baby is different, but as long as she's full and happy I wouldn't stress about it.

  • DS went from 25 minutes each side from the day he was born until exactly at 7 weeks going down to 10 minutes each side.  He also went from eating every three hours to every two, so there was a trade off.
